The chest girth is usually the widest and thickest part of the chest measured from the back to underneath the arms. If the clothing is too tight, your dog may get hot and uncomfortable.

Bring the other end of the tape measure down to just underneath your dog’s chest, centered between the tops of his front legs. Jot down the fore-chest measurement.
